LANDOVER -- Before yesterday's game with the Washington Bullets at the Capital Centre, Detroit Pistons captain Isiah Thomas said, "After all we've been through, if we make the playoffs this year, it will be a miracle."A sellout crowd of 18,756 watched the Pistons perform at least a minor miracle. Minus scoring leader Joe Dumars (strained right knee) and Thomas, who was ejected seven seconds into the second quarter, Detroit rallied in the second half to whip the Bullets, 106-94.It was unsung Gerald Glass (14 points)

Call the Detroit Pistons the stealth contenders. The Pistons weren't expected to be much more than an afterthought in the Central Division, fodder for the defending division champion Milwaukee Bucks and the seemingly more talented Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers. Yet, while the Bucks have bickered among themselves, the Raptors have been reeling of late and the Pacers have remade their roster in a trade-deadline deal, the Pistons have quietly pushed their way to the top of the division.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Washington Bullets . . . well, ran out of bullets last night, and Detroit's Joe Dumars came in blazing with both barrels to lead the Pistons to a 91-79 victory at The Palace.While Washington made only five of 25 field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter, Dumars scored 13 of his game-high 38 points. It was enough to wipe out a couple of nine-point Bullets leads and give Detroit its seventh straight home-court victory."We had good shots, open layups, and we took some bad shots," said Bullets coach Wes Unseld.

LANDOVER -- This was the game the Washington Bullets figured to win, the game that would end the long losing streak. The Detroit Pistons seemed like ideal victims, winners of just one of their previous 10 games in the team's worst start since the 1980-81 season.But with Pistons guard Joe Dumars scoring 16 of his game-high 27 points in the fourth quarter, Detroit held off the Bullets, 97-95, before 8,143 at USAir Arena.The sparse crowd witnessed a late comeback by the Bullets, who rallied after falling behind 95-89 with 1:40 left after a three-pointer by Dumars.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Scoring has been a problem for the Washington Bullets all season, and their failure to put the ball in the basket did them in again last night.The Bullets shot 42 percent from the field and 60 percent from the foul line in their fourth straight defeat. The Detroit Pistons held on down the stretch for a 100-93 victory at the Palace of Auburn Hills."We're having a very difficult time scoring," said Bullets coach Wes Unseld.The Bullets converted eight offensive rebounds into 16 points, but Unseld said that wasn't good enough.

DETROIT -- Chuck Daly wasn't home yesterday.He was off in search of anonymity. Hiding, really. Away from the questions he knew would come.If you are the coach of the U.S. Olympic basketball team, what do you tell players who have helped you win a couple of NBA championships when none of them are invited to go with you to Barcelona, Spain?That is Daly's problem.That is why he was flying away from home, to a few days of solitude on Monday, the day USA Today revealed that the Olympic selection subcommittee had sent letters inviting 10 NBA players to represent the United States next summer in Barcelona.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- It's amazing that Wes Unseld was able to field a team, never mind stay in the game until the last few minutes against a team that has won two NBA titles in the past three seasons.His Washington Bullets had left Harvey Grant and Ledell Eackles back home nursing injuries. His starting lineup consisted of rookie Larry Stewart (Coppin State) and Greg Foster flanking Pervis Ellison up front and recent free-agent signee David Wingate and Michael Adams in the backcourt.In the end, the Detroit Pistons were able to hold off the Bullets, 85-79, last night before a sellout crowd of 21,454 at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

TORONTO -- Don't get Larry Johnson wrong.He's looking forward to being on the medal stand tomorrow to receive the gold for winning the World Championship of Basketball. But in light of the lopsided games the United States has played and the large chunk of his summer spent trying to achieve that goal, he would have preferred a different script."We could have had one of our younger teams play. Then we could have come over for the gold-medal game," Johnson said. "We could have skipped right to the gold-medal game."

TORONTO -- Russian coach Sergei Belov played on the 1972 Soviet Union Olympic team that shocked the United States to win the gold medal, so he knew exactly how to pump his players up for last night's game against Dream Team II."The players we face are not superhuman -- top-notch professionals -- but human," Belov said. "Once on the court, there would be five-on-five on each side."With that plan in mind, Russia did the unthinkable in last night's final quarterfinal game at the World Championship of Basketball -- almost playing even with the Dream Team.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Isiah Thomas' career can stand alone.With all that he accomplished in 13 seasons with the Detroit Pistons, Thomas -- who officially announced his retirement yesterday -- doesn't have to be linked to a team.Or to teammates.Not many who have played pro sports can say that.Still, it would be nearly impossible to talk about Thomas and not about the backcourt he led.Thomas, Joe Dumars and Vinnie Johnson made up what many consider the bestbackcourt in NBA history.Given the many great guard trios who have played on the hardwood, that's saying a lot. Still, the others would be hard-pressed to produce rings from back-to-back NBA championships.
